McDonnell Aircraft Model 220 Factory Photos

3 D4C 3957 Jul-60 Model 220 The McDonnell Aircraft Model 220. After McAir lost the contract for the UTX/UCX, the 119 was rebranded as the 220 and marketed as a small, short haul airliner/business jet. Sadly, no orders were forthcoming. Credit: Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum

Personal note: I have loved this aircraft since I first saw it's sleek lines in Bldg. 42, when I joined the McAir Flight Test Dept. in 1963. This "Baby 707" sat in the corner of the hanger for several years and I got to "fondle" her many times and even went inside the cabin twice! Over the years, I collected everything I could find on her; so. stay tuned!
